Quality Dry Cleaning

What is Dry Cleaning?

Do you ever wonder how your gowns and suits are cleaned mysteriously by a dry cleaning service? You drop off your most prized clothing items to your dry cleaner and have it returned to you looking brand new?

Dry cleaning is pretty much the same with regular laundering, but instead of water and detergent, a solvent is used to remove dirt and stains. The solvent contains very little or no water, hence the name “dry cleaning.”

Dry cleaners use a very large, advanced, computer-operated machine for dry cleaning. Your clothes get cleaned and get wet, but the liquid solvent used evaporates much faster than water.

Types of Clothes that Needs to be Dry Cleaned

Gowns, dresses, suits and coats and other items with special detailing or are made with delicate materials will require special type of cleaning. Before putting them in the laundry, make sure to check the tag for cleaning instructions.

  • Wedding Gowns and Dresses
  • Suits
  • Silk and Wool

Good Dry Cleaning Process Explained


The dry cleaning chamber will be filled with solvent and set to about 85 degrees Fahrenheit as the drum rotates, agitating the clothing items. Typically, the washing lasts for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the type of garment.


After the wash cycle, the garments are rinsed with distilled solvent to prevent discoloration due to the soil particles absorbed back into the clothing.


The loads of garment will then be stumbled in a stream of air that’s about 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it has completely dried, a deodorizing cycle will be done to remove any trace of solvent from the clothing items. After which, the clothes are ready to be pressed and delivered back to you.
